In the heart of the Maremma countryside lies the village of Magliano in Toscana. Located on a hill and surrounded by greenery, the village of Magliano is already fascinating at first glance, entirely surrounded by an imposing city wall.

The real gem of Magliano is its historic center, entirely surrounded by walls and made up of very particular streets and alleys, it is accessed from the Porta di San Giovanni, dating back to the period before the Sienese domination. From here, go along Corso Garibaldi until you reach the Palazzo di Checco il Bello. In addition to this building, the main monuments and places of interest that we find in the historic center are the parish church of San Giovanni Battista in Piazza della Repubblica (Roman period then renovated over the centuries), the Palazzo dei Priori, the Church of San Martino. The historic center of Magliano is also perfect for discovering the flavors of Maremma food and wine given the number and level of restaurants and small wine bars.
The walls and its walkway deserve a separate mention. The first traces of the walls date back to around the year one thousand, today two different types of architecture can be clearly seen: the fourteenth-century one and the result of the Sienese restructuring that took place in the second half of the fifteenth century. Completely renovated in 1999, the walls are passable for a good stretch and thanks to the walkway it is possible to enjoy an enviable view that reaches the Maremma coast.
A few kilometers from Magliano along the road that leads to Sant’Andrea are the ruins of the abbey of San Bruzio. The construction dates back to the 11th century in Romanesque style and the capitals decorated with numerous sculptures are still visible today. This is a real peculiarity for the Maremma.
Another peculiarity of the Magliano area that deserves a visit is the Olive Tree of the Witch located just outside the town. It is a very ancient plant (about 3500 years old) which has taken on a very particular shape. It is said that pagan ceremonies took place at the foot of this olive tree in medieval times.
In the territory of Magliano there are also some necropolises of Etruscan origin dating back to the period between the seventh and sixth centuries BC. The finds recovered from the excavations can be found in the Archaeological Museum of Grosseto or in the Documentation Center of Magliano. Some tombs are located on private properties and to visit them you need to contact the tourist office.

Other important excavations are those of the Doganella from the Etruscan era relating to the ancient city of Kaloùsion. Unfortunately, today the archaeological area is quite small compared to what the city was originally, but for enthusiasts it is still worth a visit.
The municipality of Magliano in Toscana extends to the sea and includes two beaches both located within the Maremma Natural Park: Collelungo beach and Cala di Forno. To access it, you need to contact the park’s visitor center.
